"Just Food and The Sylvia Center share the belief that all New Yorkers should have access to farm-fresh, healthy food every day, and that's the beauty of this event," said Just Food Executive Director Jacquie Berger. "Guests will be supporting Just Food and The Sylvia Center's efforts to increase access to locally-grown food and impart basic but vital cooking skills to underserved communities." 

  

"The Sylvia Center teaches young people about cooking and eating fresh, healthy food," explained Executive Director Anna Hammond. "The dinners on July 24 are a perfect opportunity for guests to join together in celebrating the bounty of the growing season, and the extraordinary people who make it possible while supporting the work of Just Food and The Sylvia Center."
